Articles on the Wonder of Christmas
Thinkers Seeking Jesus (Matthew 2)
The fact that not only representative toilers [the shepherds] sought Jesus, but representative thinkers did likewise is impressive. The greatest thinkers the world has ever seen have been humble followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Bible is a Book of Wisdom, and points out the true source of all wisdom. Ponder over this statement: "The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple." There we find how we may become wise men and women.
Note a few facts about these wise men showing their wisdom.
1. They were in a far country, and so are we, if we have not yet come to Him. They must have been in a far country, for they came from the East.
2. They saw God's messenger, and just where they were, too, and that was a sign of real wisdom. There are some folk who see nothing, going through the world with either eyes closed or unobservant. "We have seen His star in the east." Some, like the man with the muck rake do not see because they do not look up. Remembering Balaam's prophecy (Numbers 24:17), they took great heed, recognising in the Star God's messenger. The Holy Spirit is God's Star today, and He is ever seeking to draw the attention of sinners to the Lord Jesus. He is seeking to draw us to the only One who can do helpless sinners good.
3. They started forth to find and worship Jesus. Some see, yet never come. The purpose of the star was not to amuse, but to lead. They had a long journey to make, but we have not far to go to seek and find the Saviour. We find not a weak babe, but a strong One mighty to save.
4. They seem to have made a mistake, taking their eyes off the star and leaning too much on their own reasoning. Surely, thought they, that the Great One would born in the capital; so they took their eyes off the star, following human reasoning, and came to Jerusalem. See the disastrous results that followed--the massacre of the innocents at Bethlehem. Far better to keep our eyes on the Heavenly messenger, and to be guided by the Lord.
5. Ah, soon they found Jesus, as all real seekers do, and what satisfaction that find brought to their hearts and lives.
6. Then they worshipped, presenting their costly gifts, as all should act who are the found ones of the Lord. Yet, alas, so many take all the Lord Jesus has to give, but forget to give as a thank-offering, first themselves, then to consecrate all they have to the One who has done so much for them.
